Tom provided an extremely thorough home inspection and answered questions about the house with clarity and specifics. My family has never really thought of home inspection as being useful nor valuable based on our past three experiences. In the past other services answered our questions with "We can't guarantee that" or "probably needs to be replaced in the future." And two months after we moved into that old house, it leaked water everywhere from the roof and windows. Let alone the AC was dead but was told "functional...." in the report... So yes... Home inspection never was high on our book of appreciated. HOWEVER, Tom shed a new light to what all home inspectors ought to be. I will definitely use his service again and refer to my family and friends. Anything that we weren't sure of during the inspection, Tom clarified and explained what is properly needed to be up to code. Aside from the home inspection Tom did for us, I think we learned so much about the property in that time, it was worth the money for knowledge gained so we know what to look for during house shopping.
